Default re: ICE upgrade : VW Vento

Apologies for re-sending this. I was not able to get to the previous post in time to be able to edit it.

As you all know, my query has been around changing the HU for my Vento.

I spoke with people at Eonon as for the C5152 Model and as posted previously, they asked me for a picture of the HU (front) and also a picture of the power socket of the HU. RajeevRaj was kind enough to share the picture of the back of the HU showing the power plug. I shared the same with folks at Eonon and they said the power plug is different and they shared heir power plug design.

Being an absolute noob, I thought I'll look up the experts for advice again. Though the diagram itself seem to indicate there is a difference and may require cutting wires and I'm not comfortable doing so.

Looking forward to inputs

But I'm still on the hunt for a HU with RNS 510 like performance with India Navigation.
From your experience, how would you compare Audiosources DNS 810 and Dynavin N6-VW? which one is your recommendation and why?

Thanks

The 2011 refresh of the Vento came with the RCD 310, which supports bluetooth. However, for the bluetooth to work, we need an extra bluetooth module (like 9W2, 9W7, or 9WZ). Without this module, the radio will only show a dummy bluetooth option.

Thank you Vivek! I had a feeling i was missing something here. Can I buy this from VW spares? Is it better to just upgrade the ICE instead when comparing the price of this kit? Do you happen to know the price? Thanks once again!

The price of the module if procured from VW will be prohibitively expensive. Also, I am not too sure if VW ASS will procure the module for you. It would be easier to upgrade to one of the MIB II units, like the RCD 330G or 330G +.

Moderator Gannu and a few others have recently upgraded to the 330G + unit on their cars. Please refer to the below threads:

PS : I currently have the RCD 510 + 9W7 in my car. I had got these units while I was in the UK last year. The total cost for both these units in my case was around 30K.

Better to upgrade to RCD330 Plus which is cheaper right now.
